 5  Arrhythmia/tachycardia None other than those we hoped for. Low steady pulse rate. I was switched to this after decades on atenolol for Tachycardia. For some reason it stopped working. I spent 4 nights in the ER went on 6 ambulance rides With a raging Paul's and blood pressure. HBP never before an issue in my personal history. It was a terrifying nightmare. Zebeta, over the course of 5 days, got my heart calmed down and it stayed that way. 60 3 months

 1  High bp Very bad depression, insomnia, very dry mouth, swollen feet & ankle and ED. I really hate it . M 48 6 months
 2  High BP Hate this drug. But it does it job and keeps bp down. Was increased to 10mg over the time on. But couldnít breath so dropped down to 7.5 then 2.5mg. Doctor made error of telling me to stop 2.5 suddenly rebound high bp and heart rate. Side effects are horrible but doc thinks all in my head. Canít move legs sometimes, their like they want to start weaving all over place, At other. Pins and needles No strength anymore and also had bad muscular cramps especially in hands and legs. Not to mention the fact that I know bearly eat. Depression and anixety to the max. Much like above comment cried at not getting gp appointment. Iím 41 and feel more like 81. I canít breath right anymore. And your meant to keep fit to lower BP canít even manage stairs. Insomnia too as well as digestive issues. Horrible drug that gp wonít change as itís keeping bp down but at what cost to my quality of life. If you look at this drug on healthlocker. You see other users call it the devils drug. F 41 90 days
 4  High Blood Pressure Worked great on BP. Only had mild stomach issue. Had to discontinue because it caused my heart rate to go to 40 bpm even after halfing the dose. I hated to stop this med. very mild side effects and very effective. Went to Altace which was was horrible compared to this, with many wicked side effects. F 50 1 months
5 mg 1X D
 3  RVOT, frequent PVCs Tiredness, cold hands/feet, headaches, nausea, anxiety, depression This drug was amazing to start with. Got rid of all my chest pain and felt quite well once the tiredness had subsided. Then came the unbelievable anxiety and depression. In a matter of weeks I became reclusive, irritable and told my partner I wanted to throw myself of a bridge. I became so anxious I couldn't even make a simple decision and completely broke down when I couldn't get an appointment to see the doctor! Medication was changed and within 2 weeks the depression/anxiety had disappeared. Excellent medication but the side effects were just too much for me. F 34 3 months

 1  chf, hi blood pressure blurred vision, hearing loss, ringing in ears sometimes tickle in throat, numbness and tingeling in hands and gets very bad, muscles in legs hurt have a hard time walking, knees hurt, get a strange sensation in back of thighs and start to breath heavy and legs hurt also get a strange sensation going down the middle of my chest sometimes all over body and the heels of my feet hurt especially when i'm sleeping, and acid reflux which i believe was due to taking HBP pills for 25 years (at least 18 different pills) over the years. and of course the doctor doesn't believe you have to take all kind of test to prove him wrong. and keep everybody in business. F 67 5 months
2.5 1X D
 3  CHF, Uncontrolled A-Fib Dizziness, Swollen Tongue & Throat, Difficulty Breathing, Low Blood Pressure, Numbness In Face, Fatigue POSITIVE: Lowered heart rate and got me out of CHF within hours. NEGATIVE: Very low BP (60/40's); Dizziness; Fatigue; Allergic Reaction; I wish I was able to take this because it is the only drug that has worked in bringing down my high heart rate and took me out of CHF within just a few hours. Amazing! After stopping Zebeta, my rate went back up over 100 (resting) within 24 hours. I really think if I could have stayed on this, it would have converted me out of A-fib into NSR. If you can tolerate the side effects, it may just be the drug for you. Really keep an eye on your blood pressure to make sure it doesn't go too low. F 50 1 days
5 mg 1X D
 5  hypertension, arhythmias sometimes heartbeat very slow (less than 50 bpm) works better for me than metoprolol and propranolol with less/no CNS side effects M 28 5 years

 4  hypertension, PVCs I am taking 10MG of lisinopril but my BP went up recently (stress) so Dr. added this. I jog 2 miles a day, my resting HR is usually 62, this drug is lowering my resting HR but it is stopping my PVCs (which were increasing) and has brought my BP back to 110/70; I will cut it in half for the next few days, see if the BP results remain good but the HR goes up a little. I hate those PVCs and I can't take more than 10MG Lisinopril because it causes constipation. F 63 2 days
5MG 1X D
 4  high blood pressure my hands go to sleep easily, especially at night when I'm sleeping. If I use the computer mouse much, my right hand goes to sleep. I also become cold more easier...used to be pretty hot-natured. started taking half of a 5 mg pill...didn't lower BP enough so now I take a whole pill. Seems to work fine now. M 44 1 years
 3  Tachycardia Cold hands, dizziness, stomach problems M 10 years
 2  HBP, PVC's Started at 5.0 mg, then dropped to 2.5 mg. Very Slow HR, very tired, more PVC's (when exercising), low sex drive. Lowered my BP too much (90/60) from 150/90. My cardiologist change my RX. to Diovan 80/12.5mg, dropped the ZEBETA after 6 months. Went for a sleep apnea study, was RX. a CPAP machine. With the CPAP I'm sleeping much better and no more PVC's. My BP is at the 115/75 range most of the time. M 55 6 months
 4  Tachycardia Frequent trips to bathroom. Nothing else yet... I've been taking Monocor (Bisoprolo) for about 2 months. Currently taking 2.5mg daily and it gently calms my heart and blood pressure wich were off the charts. M 28 2 months
 4  HBP If take > than 2.5mg = very slow HR, tiredness, low sex drive. It will definetly lower your BP M 50 6 days

ZEBETA  (BISOPROLOL FUMARATE):  Bisoprolol is used with or without other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. This medication belongs to a class of drugs known as beta blockers. It works by blocking the action of certain natural chemicals in your body such as epinephrine on the heart and blood vessels. This effect lowers the heart rate, blood pressure, and strain on the heart.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
